Genesis MLT Movement Joint

Genesis MLT Thin PVC Movement & Perimeter Joint

Genesis MLT is a thin, light duty PVC movement joint designed to protect the edge of the floor covering from light traffic. The joint is filled with a dark grey PVC/rubber infill that's both attractive and durable. MLT can be used as a movement joint between tiles, or as a 5mm perimeter joint by simple snapping along the v-shaped groove to remove one of the flanges. MLT movement & perimeter joints can be used internally and externally. 2.5m long.

Movement Joints must be installed in certain areas and positions to prevent tiles debonding from the Substrate, industry guidelines suggest that the maximum field should be no more than 10m in each direction but in practice, depending on the individual applications it tends to between 5-8m. British Standards BS5385 covers the requirements and methods for movement joints applications. Part 3: 1989-Section 3-19.1.1 states the building designer should assess the magnitude of any stresses and decide where movement joints should be located taking into consideration all the relevant factors. Movement Joints must be installed directly above any changes in substrate or movement joints/ Gaps in the substrate

Installing the Genesis MLT Movement & Perimeter Joint:

  1. Choose the depth of profile that fits with the thickness of your tiles.
  2. Using a suitable notched trowel, spread tile adhesive onto the floor in according to the manufacturers guidelines.
  3. Firmly bed the trim into the adhesive in the correct location - make sure that the adhesive penetrates the holes in the flange.
  4. Spread the adhesive over the the anchoring legs and bed the tiles firmly into the adhesive (best practice is for the profile to be approximately 1mm lower than the tile).
  5. A grout joint should be left between the tile and the profile.
